First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hording Books.
Hey! Would you look at that. It’s already the first Friday of 2019, which means the first of First Line Fridays!
Today I’m going to be sharing the first line of my first read for this year.
“We have no photographs of our early days, Danny and I. A ix-month gap yawns in the Mayes family album after we were born. No first-day-at-school pictures for Edwin, no means of telling which of us two looked more like him at the beginning. An empty double page marks the overwhelming grief that followed our arrival.”
The Au Pair is a very interesting domestic mystery. I’m not yet sure if it’s a thriller because I’m only about 40% in, but it sure does puzzle a whole lot. I’ve practically written question after question, suspicion after suspicion after every chapter. I can’t wait to finally find out what’s what.
The Au Pair is Emma Rous’ debut novel. It comes out on January 8 published by Berkley Books.
